Presenting the EG-2 (Sunburst) from Traveler Guitar

The Traveler Guitar EG-2 is a full 25 ½"-scale electric guitar featuring a compact traditional double-cutaway body shape and classic 3-ply pick guard, which provide vintage looks and modern comfort to the traveling guitarist. At just 29" long, the EG-2 stows easily in airline overhead compartments and weighs less than 5 pounds. Two precision-placed single-coil pickups feed into the EG-2's built-in Pocket Rock-it headphone amplifier, which is custom-designed to produce classic clean and distortion sounds through headphones or when plugged into an amplifier. Players can also go passive into their amp of choice. The EG-2's onboard electronics include a 1/8" AUX IN jack so players can jam with an mp3 player. Additional controls include Tone & Volume knobs and a 3-way pickup selector.

The Traveler Guitar EG-2 also boasts more traditional guitar features such as an alder body, American Hard Maple neck, standard strap pins and a fully adjustable truss rod. Includes Deluxe Gig Bag, 9V battery and comes standard with D'Addario EXL-110 strings.

The quick lick. I have an ES 175 and I love it, yet I would never consider taking it with me on trips and leaving it in a hotel. Better yet, those that practice a lot know that family members really don't want to hear you running scales or riffs for hours on end, so the "Pocket Rocket" headphone amp with clean & distortion settings is a must. The action is set from the factory perfect, no buzzing, and no strain either thru the headphones or my amps. I really recommend this guitar especially for the $$$. The sound is rich and full and very comparable to my 1978 Gibson.

Color Name: WhiteHand Orientation: right Verified Purchase
This mini-strat fills the bill for me as a travel guitar. It will fit in a 29" suitcase, diagonally in its guitar case. It a 27" suitcase it will fit only with out the included case.
High points: The guitar has a nice tone, very close to to that of a Fender Stratocaster. It appears to be well made with decently low action. Intonation on the upper frets is good. The quality of the tuners and bridge and workman ship all appear good. There were no visible flaws. The aux input and headphone jack were the key features for me beside its full size neck in a small travel size.
It stays in tune almost as well as my American made Strat.
Low points: The aux input was loose, I unscrewed is mounting, and tightened the nut while holding the aux jack so it wouldn't turn as I tightened it. The Pocket Rocket feature will drain the included battery in 1 day if left on. Mine arrived with a dead battery. The guitar case could use a second strap so it can be carried like a back pack.
Other than that, I'm quite satisfied. I'd rate it B to B+.

I'll be respectfully brief and to the point. This is not only a great travel guitar, but a pretty damn interestingly voiced guitar on its own. Frankly, when I put the EG-2 through a very nice hardware amp simulator and played a bit I was pleasantly surprised. Enough sounds in its palette to satisfy with really good tone and feel. It is very well made and aside from not being able to comment on it's longevity I am very satisfied with this guitar and the niche it fills admirably.

For a travel guitar the build quality seems pretty good, but I'd recommend trying it in the store before buying. I bought it to play in the car at lunch and take on vacation, but I find playing on such a little body very uncomfortable - especially in the car - personally I need arm support (I might try the Speedster instead, which has the detachable arm rest). Because of this and because the bridge (or where the bridge normally is - maybe I should call it the nut since string direction is reversed) is much further back than on other guitars, playing is just too awkward for me. Also some of the finish around one screw was a little chipped off when I received it. The sound is good - the switches (pickup and Pocket RockIt) are a little iffy but nothing too serious.
On the upside, the fret board is comfortable and nice. The bag is also very good quality - much better than my other gig bags.
I'm sure this guitar would be great for some people - just maybe not for my purposes.

I was at a conference for four days last month and really missed playing my guitar. I had been thinking about the traveler and went to a local guitar center and bought an EG-1 (mini les paul) with one humbucker at the bridge. It had OK action but I didn't care for the single pickup because I am on a Stevie Ray / Mark Knopfler / Robin Trowler (you get the idea) kick. When I saw the EG-2 I figured I had to try it- just to tote it around and play when I had some time once I got home. This guitar arrived the after I got home, and I can't put it down. It sounds just like a real strat, and plays with nice action. I have a small FM transmitter that I used for playing a portable CD player over a car FM receiver from years ago, and now my car radio is my new portable practice amp. The quality of this guitar is much better than the EG-1 that I had at the hotel, so maybe this company is learning some lessons on how to make it right. I am totally happy with this guitar and will keep it in my truck and not worry too much about it given the cost. That said though I would hate to have anything happen to this guitar!

My other guitar is a PRS Studio which I would never consider leaving in my truck!

I bought this because I am in a band and I travel for my day job. My bass/keyboard player makes his living fixing, modifying, and creating custom instruments, mostly guitars. So we know how to sett up a cheap guiar to make it play well. Here is the bottom line. TRAVELLER GUITARS DO NOT HOLD THIER TUNE! Its ok because I dont intend to take it on stage. Also I am still playing with little mods to make it better. I got rid of the patch of carpet that was meant to deaden the strings on the backside and am dreaming up other ways to deaden the strings on the backside. It may not be important but the strings on the back of the guitar are very close to the underside of the pickups, so I am expecting the string segments near the tuning keys (backside) to bleed through. The patch of fuzzy stuff was binding the strings on the backside so I removed it. Also the roller bearings (Big plastic rollers so the strings can wrap arouund to the back) do not function that good ether. Its a shame because some of the engineering and parts are pretty good, the bridge is nice, cheapo single coils sound OK, it really sounds like a strat.

It souunds fine, the neck is ok, slightly shorter scale than a regullar strat so its a little tighter but so what, it'll strengthen you up when you practice in your hotel room. I got mine used for about half the price of a new one. So I am still happy, but if you expect it to hold its tune you may be displeased with a $500 purchase.

I have a tuner on my cell phone and just sit there and tune it periodically. IF I figure out a good mod to fix all this cheaply, I'll post it, Its a shame because it really is good enough practice on when you travel. It has a cool gig bag with a pocket just the right size for an ipad.
